Inkigayo is cockblocking IOI. Music Core also cockblocks IOI, but that isn't making the news. Why this is making the news is because IOI possibly could have won on Inkigayo, or at the very least been a lot closer. Actually being there gives you more points or something (I don't know, I stopped caring about music show wins in early 2010 when SNSD was promoting "Run Devil Run", Kara was promoting "Lupin" and T-ara was promoting "I Go Crazy Because Of You" at the same time. Good times, and I stopped caring who won because in the end if you were a fan of all three, we were the winners.)
No, I present an alternative theory. In the age of the SJW, I wouldn't be surprised if someone hasn't said it yet. If someone hasn't actually made this claim, I am shocked.
INKIGAYO IS RACIST AGAINST HALF KOREANS LIKE SOMI! BOYCOTT THE RACIST FUCKERS! THEY DON'T WANT WHITEY ON STAGE!
